Abundance + A Giveaway Winner!

I was driving home yesterday and felt overcome with gladness.  For every one thing I am stressed or upset about, there are ten things I am so thankful for.  And suddenly, that one thing seems so insignificant.  (#firstworldproblems, anyone?) 

The older I get the more I believe that what I put out into the universe I will receive back in abundant ways.  Whether you call it God, karma, Buddha, living with intention, or (as I like to call it) being awesome at life, I'd like to believe that everyone believes something similar.   I must be doing something right, because I felt wonderful yesterday!  Nothing in particular was markedly extraordinary, but I felt light and happy.  (Still do!)  And if you read this post this week, you know that my heart felt anything but light. 

Life is beautiful!  The universe is abundant!

Highlights from this week:
Work has been busy!  (Hooray for job security!)
"My name is Lindsay.  I'm an adult, and I wear a suit to work."

Boone is developing a habit of sitting in the sink while I get ready for work.

Mr. TBS and I walked to dinner and Whole Foods on Wednesday in what felt like SoCal weather.

Free Starbs.

Knowing that I only have this commute for five more work days.
Farewell, I-45 that I've had to drive 2+ hours on every day.
I'm moving on to greener pastures, literally.

Dear Houston, Thanks a lot for making me look like a cotton-headed-ninny-muggins with this humidity.  Frizz central over here!  (But I do enjoy driving with windows down!) 

Dear Boone, you are growing up so quickly!  You wild one, you.

Dear Belongings, Can you pack and move yourself next week?  Mr. TBS and I would really appreciate it.

Dear Universe, Thank you for providing so abundantly. 

Dear Mr. TBS, I know my road to being domesticated seems to have a pretty steep learning curve, but can you stop showing me up?  Thanks.  Oh, and I love you.

Dear Heather Mora, you are the proud owner of a brand-new bag from Missionary Kerrie's, because you are the winner of my celebratory giveaway!

(I intend to cloth diaper too!  
I've already gotten advice and feedback from many, including Heather!)

Look at you all fly in your office attire...get it giiiirl ;)

That is TOO funny - Boots totally lays in the sink while I'm getting ready! It's the cutest thing!

Love your shorts & sandals!

AND free Starbuck is always a good thing - especially since it costs an arm & a leg when you have to buy it.

HAPPY WEEKEND, friend :)
